Re: 3-Bedroom 2-bath 2-Story House

It's been a few months, but I have actually made a few minor changes to the alternate view of this house, mostly exterior but a few interior "tweaks".













1. I changed the stucco on the walls (and chimney) to a lighter shade. 2. Enlarged the roof tiling, and hopefully I now have them roughly the same visual size. 3. Made sure the woodwork on the doghouses were set so that they would render decently. 4. Raised the height of the patio covering by a foot so that it better matched the new extension, and in so doing I changed the size of the lighting as well as of the hanging plants. 5. Lowered the windows of the garage and the back office so that they were even with the other windows as well as the back door. 6. Removed one of the hedges at the front in order to have more room for the tree near the driveway entrance, mainly because if this were a real house that tree would need room to grow. 7. Enlarged the tiles in the Guest Bathroom's shower area, added the cabinet above the toilet as well as a pair of clothes hampers.

I'm also tempted on adding visible beams inside over the Living Room and the Overhang area, but I haven'd done so yet and am still debating on that.

I believe those are the changes that I made of this house. Before I did this, I also found a plan for a 1920's home that I liked and have been doing a "modern take" on it like I had for some other houses... as well as working on a Halloween costume or two.

Re: 3-Bedroom 2-bath 2-Story House

Puybaret, I just downloaded the most recent version of the program, and when I went to increase the max memory as you had mentioned previously the part that I would be able to do so doesn't seem to be a part of Info.plist any longer.

With the free version under Mac OS X, click on the application icon of Sweet Home 3D while maintaining the ctrl key pressed to display its contextual menu, choose Show Package Contents item, open the Contents folder, edit the Info.plist file by dragging its icon on TextEdit application and update the maximum memory in the text <string>-Xmx1024m</string>, writing for example <string>-Xmx2g</string> for 2 GB instead of 1024 MB. Finally, save the file and relaunch Sweet Home 3D. If Info.plist is protected, you may run a command like sudo nano /Applications/Sweet\ Home\ 3D.app/Contents/Info.plist in a Terminal window to edit it (this command requires to enter the password of the administrator of the Mac).


I also tried opening a Terminal window as mentioned but once I put in sudo nano /Applications/Sweet\ Home\ 3D.app/Contents/Info.plist and hit enter it wouldn't let me enter my password. I've copied/pasted what my Info.plist file says, below.

Am I missing something? The only reason I'm writing this inside of one of my posts is because this is the post in which I was originally informed of how to increase my memory so that I can take rendered pictures. I tried to do so after downloading the newer version, and the program won't let me.

Re: 3-Bedroom 2-bath 2-Story House

I'd like to apologize for the previous post here; I was having trouble getting pictures taken, but there isn't any longer an issue. I've been able to get pictures rendered of the original version of this house, furnished.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/4ai2268w4x24547...side%25282%2529.sh3d/file


Aerial Front. I used at least half as many hedges as before, just made them longer. I decided to take out the one tree in front of the house and have the greenery more symmetrical. I widened the front door. I thickened the gate near the garage and added a second one on the other side of the house as well as added another privacy wall. I changed the chimney.


Aerial Back. I don't believe I made any changes here.


Front entrance.


Just inside the front door.




Great room, two views.




Kitchen, two views.




Guest bedroom, two views.




Guest bathroom, two views.


Laundry room.




Garage, two views.






Back patio, three views. When I went to take the third picture I realized that I'd forgotten to add a porch light next to the door up the stairs so I added it. I then forgot to retake the aerial back picture; that's why there isn't one in the aerial picture.




Overlook and top of the stairs, two views. I just realized as I include this picture here that I have a wall issue (visible in the first picture) that I need to address. Also, I'm thinking of adding some skylights into the slanted roof over the Great room...


Bedroom.


Master bedroom.


Main bathroom.




Sewing room/loft, two views.


Floor plan, main floor.


Floor plan, first floor.


Floor plan, attic. I didn't take any pictures of the attic space because I didn't make any changes to it.

Re: 3-Bedroom 2-bath 2-Story House

Just a quick follow-up post; I fixed the wall above the stairway. I ended up actually deleting the walls on both the first and second level and replacing them.



In so doing, I realized that I had a few other things that needed small adjustments, like the railing behind the chairs, the size of the rug under the chairs, and placement of the chairs...



I realize it's a bit hard to see from this picture (since I didn't make the roofing invisible to take it), but in order to adjust the railing, I made it about half its original size and copied it so that there are more balusters. The rug I made 6'6" x 12' instead of 5' x 13'; I think it now fits better in the overlook space. In doing that I moved the chairs, table and lamp so that they're more symmetrically placed on the rug.

Re: 3-Bedroom 2-bath 2-Story House

Thanks for these nice images. This triangle fireplace is very original smile

I'd like to apologize for not answering to your message posted on October 15th. It was a short time after the release of the version 6.0, at a moment when I didn't updated the FAQ How can I adjust the memory used by Sweet Home 3D? yet. I changed the FAQ to make the difference between people who still use Apple Java 1.6 and the ones who use Oracle Java 1.8. Sorry again sad

Re: 3-Bedroom 2-bath 2-Story House

That's alright, Puybaret, as it seems to have worked itself out in the end.

Just after my last post, I made a few additions to the inside of the house.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/k7h7nq44xa3b7hb...side%25283%2529.sh3d/file





I've added beams to the ceilings over the Great Room and the Overlook/Stairway. I adjusted the railings separating the Overlook with the Great Room (there's 3 instead of 2 so that there are now more balusters), and now I think that all the railings have roughly the same spacings. I've also added more posts to the ends of the railings.

The bookcases around the bathroom door were raised to 8 feet and I changed the wood used on them.

I then took a bit of inspiration from a couple of my other houses and put in a row of fixed windows above the Overlook.

I also adjusted the roofing so that there wasn't any disparities visible from the inside.
